September 1, 2011—October 8, 2011 | Reception Thursday, Sept 1st, 6-8PM
James Harris Gallery is pleased to present prints and color fields by Portland-based artist, Storm Tharp. Tharp, whose work was included in the 2010 Whitney Biennial, has been almost exclusively showing in Portland and Switzerland over the last 15 years. Over the course of his practice, Tharp has dabbled in a wide variety of mediums including textiles, video, sculpture, painting, and drawing- taking inspiration from a wide range of influences from 1970’s American cinema and Japanese portrait prints. The core of his work revolves around the nature of identity and its representation and perception.
